Rabies-Neutralizing Antibody Test
Rabies-neutralizing antibodies are present in the blood of people who have received a preventative vaccine to protect them against contracting rabies if they are bitten by an infected animal. The presence of rabies-neutralizing antibodies is also used to identify people who have been bitten by an animal suspected of having rabies, in order to begin treatment. This test is used on both humans and animals to determine protection against rabies, or the presence of an active rabies infection.
